Abstract

A well-known persona on the Singaporean literary arts scene, Pooja Nansi’s poetic work draws inspiration from a myriad of artistic forms, such as hip-hop, song lyrics and spoken word. Born to Gujarati parents in 1981, Pooja’s role as a poet, musician and literary advocate encompass issues as wide-ranging as ethnic and cultural diversity, community development and the showcasing of marginalised or minority voices. A graduate of the National University of Singapore, Pooja Nansi was a teacher for many years at Temasek Junior College until becoming a full-time writer; in 2015 she was writer-in-residence at Nanyang Technical University, where she continues to teach creative writing on a part-time basis.
